4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had on tap at Deep Ellum in Boston. Dark amber in color with a nice fluffy white head. Nice aroma of dark fruits, bread, candy, banana and carmel. Taste is of raisons, plums, roasted malts, carmel and toffee. Creamy mouthful, no detection of alcohol, easy to drink. Very enjoyable and would recommend to others.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Gosh darn, gol dang Europeans haven’t got anything better to do than to drink ’our’ beer and make their nice comments about it, dag nab it! By gum, this here beer is brewed in Somerville, Massachusetts by red-blooded Americans! I wouldn’t put it in the same class as the various Belgian Trappistes, but it is an impressive offering from the Somervillians, or perhaps the Somer-villains, I was never sure in all the years I lived there. I’m proud of you lads. If the Euros like it, it’s probably pretty damn good!
